Get your apartment shares sorted in one night
At Spareroom we’re experts in creating happy apartment shares, and our SpeedRoommating events are one of the most popular and successful ways we do it. You’ll meet lots of potential new roommates in just a couple of hours, giving you the best chance of finding the right ones without the hassle (and awkwardness) of attending viewings first. We hold regular SpeedRoommating events in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and entry is totally FREE.
See lots of potential roommates in the time it would normally take to see just one!
Forget any awkwardness and feeling like you’re in an interview. You’ll be meeting new roommates on neutral ground in a bar – and what’s more relaxing than chatting over a drink?
Meeting new potential roommates in a public setting eliminates any potential risk that comes with going to a stranger’s house.
It's more fun
Everyone’s in the same position, which is a great ice breaker. You’ll meet lots of likeminded people and maybe even find some new friends as well as roommates…
How it works

Grab a drink…it's one way to break the ice! Most of our events have a happy hour (and cocktails), so buy your favorite and get mingling.
